OH&S SafetyPod: The Future of Safety: Expanding Construction and Oil & Gas Education

Interested in the the future of safety? You are in luck. In this episode of the podcast, Editor Sydny Shepard sits down with CSU Academic Program Director Dan Corcoran to talk about safety education in today's world and how academic programs are leaning into a more specialized focus.

I’m thrilled to bring you this new episode of the podcast where we take a deep dive into safety education through the lens of a CSU academic program director. It was a pleasure getting to know more about Columbia Southern, but also get a behind the scenes look at how CSU works with safety professionals in the industry to create curricula for not only their Occupational Safety and Health program but for two new concentrations being offered this year.

First, a little bit about my guest for this episode. Dan Corcoran is the academic program director for Columbia Southern University’s occupational safety and health and environmental management programs. Prior to working at CSU, Corcoran worked for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for approximately 15 years. He has served as a compliance officer, corporate safety specialist and consultant, and has held academic positions at three universities.
